A sad time for the diapering world, for those who were never had a CB and for me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> .<br><br>
Celestial Baby is really closed. Really. No more Celestial Baby diapers. That is so very sad to me (I was hoping for a NB to PL stash for her next go around).<br><br>
It is raining today and I went to her site, and it is really closed. Just seems so sad <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying"><br><br>
But the gorgeous diaper on the front page is one from my last custom order. I cannot even bring myself to use any of the diapers for fear of ruining them <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Feel free to share your CB pictures and memories <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> it might make me feel better <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

We have 2 pumpkin CB fitteds. They are the only side-snappers, that I haven't planned on getting rid of yet. I <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> them. They are so absorbant. I suppose I probably won't keep them forever though. They're also the only medium diapers that ds is anywhere close to growing out of. If his belly keeps growing, they won't fit much longer! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying"> It's very upsetting, because I know I won't be able to get any more of them. You can see my two CBs by clicking on the diaper link in my sig. Hopefully, some new WAHM will come along, who will make even more fantastic diapers, and we'll be in love with them soon. And, then next year... we'll be answering the "old hyena rollcall" and talking about WAHMs that don't exist anymore and all these new-fangled WAHMs that we've never heard of. Hey, if we're lucky ElBee and Fluffymail will actually keep stuff instock! :LOL

I snagged one of the last ones from eBay, when I saw the going-out-of-business news on her site. Here it is:<br><br><a href="http://i14.ebayimg.com/01/i/02/f1/25/9f_1.JPG" target="_blank">http://i14.ebayimg.com/01/i/02/f1/25/9f_1.JPG</a><br><br>
Now I'm wishing I had bid higher on the other one she had for sale.

Jess, no you don't!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> I got that one. I would have been sad. :LOL The one you got was gorgeous! I thought you won the blue one too?! No?! The one you won was just like one of my custom order (she made me 6 handdyeds before she closed, and I ordered some fabric from her so I should have 3 or 4 more China Doll fitteds coming when the fabric arrives).<br><br>
I <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> the sun one. It is gorgeous.<br><br>
I have mostly CB fitteds and Snuggles. I will never sell mine, ever. They are perfect for us. Perfect. Trim, absorbant, well made, cute.

Consider keeping them, or selling them Holli or myself :LOL, because my son is 22 months now and 27 lbs and can still wear a medium. He is long and skinny. He grew out of them when his belly became Buddha like, but when he slimmed down with walking and running he suddenly could wear them again. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

I think she will be impossible to replace. She sent me a Koi diaper as a gift b/c she knew I collected Asian themed diapers, which was so generous and kind <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying"> And she gave me a TB cover I <b>REALLY</b> wanted. She was such a sweet, kind and generous person who also is incredibly talented. I miss her already <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying">

Holli,<br><br>
Consider emailing her and asking her to make a medium or a doll diaper. She might do it. You never know!<br><br>
What larges do you have?!?!? Do tell! And sling? I have the sun, moon and star one that was on the front page of her kids section. I <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> that one. I only have about 6 or 8 doll diapers though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

No she said she is keeping the domain name and site b/c she might reopen one day. But not selling it. It would not be the same if she did :9 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying"><br><br>
I won a fitted and Snuggle from the Fluff Factory charity auctions last Feb and I was hooked. I snagged them a lot. I have mostly CB diapers. They are the perfect diaper for my son. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I have 2 baby doll diapers that I bought at the very end and I'm so glad I bought them. I'm REALLY going to miss her<br><br>

My very first CD was a CB vintage hemp fitted. I was going to sell it, but now I think I'm holding on to it. They fit so well and are so trim... I'm really going to miss them. CB sherpa fitteds make up about 1/4-1/3 of our stash. I love the Celestial Snuggles they fit my DD like a glove... And how Amberjane would always put a little "extra" matching wipe into the package... so special! I'm very sad that she's closed down. She is a great WAHM and will be well missed. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I have loved Ambers CB;s since the day she opened! Her diapers always fit the best on my hard to fit Rory. She is a great friend and great diaper maker. I was so lucky to be gifted a few smalls for the new baby. I hope she is able to open again by the time I need mediums <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> But I certainly understand the need to close shop for awhile.

Her Celestial Snuggles were out of this world! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> We had several and loved each of them. This is a sad time for diapering mamas everywhere. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

Celestial Baby diapers were the only fitteds I liked. They were so absorbant and gorgeous. Extremely well made.

I saw that she was officially closed yesterday. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying">: I have heaps of CB diapers in mediums and larges and one small. I also have a few doll diapers and a doll sling. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> I am so happy to have those to pass along to my other sweet babes. She was one of the great WAHMs...{{{sigh}}}

I really like CB dipes too, both the medium and the large fit both my kids. I love the 'hardiness' (is that a word LOL) but they are still so soft. She always had the best knit prints for her dipes too something that seems hard to come by. DD is down for the count in a CB right now, an orange dragonfly knit print.<br>
DS has a 'teddy bear size dipe' with a matching fitted, so cute. I wish Amberjane only the best, she was a great WAHM.

ITA....<br><br>
I have some fitteds I have had for almost a year, and they were used fairly often......and they look SOOOOO new still! Almost amazing they have been used as much as they have.<br><br>
Most of my stash is made up of her fitteds, her doublers, her wipes, her Snuggles....oh what is a girl to do? Good thing my son is almost 2 and I do not need much more in the way of diapers....otherwise I would be in TROUBLE!!!! :LOL<br><br>
How am I going to find a replacement? It would almost be like cheating!
